Preface: The 37 photos on this web page were taken during March 1-9, 2014. When Jack and I left the Krause Center at Foothill College, Los Altos Hills, on Saturday, March 1, 2014, we noticed some jumbo cumulus clouds from Parking Lot 4 around 5:45 pm. After Jack drove me home to my Pamela Drive Apartments in Mountain View, it was near sunset with a lovely glow in the sky. I fetched my camera and went to the backyard for photos (6:04-6:17 pm). A mother with young daughter was on the apartment balcony cellphoning her friend: "Look at the sunset, a neighbor is snapping photos of palms against the sunset." Later, I wrote this haiku— "Loop branch on tree / next to my apartment and / tall palms glow in sunset." There's a small tree outside my kitchen window forming a loop, so I call it "Loop Tree" not knowing its name. The eight palm trees in my backyard can be seen towering in the horizon as I wait for the bus at El Camino Real & Phyllis Ave. I often stop by the "The Graces" Palm Trees and ask them to bless me with civility. On Wednesday, March 5, snapped a photo of "Staircase" Clouds near Showers Drive, Mountain View (1:08 pm). Later a friend told me to take photos of the beautiful pink & yellow blossoming trees at Foothill College Middlefield Campus, Palo Alto. On Friday, March 7 (12:28 pm), took photo of "Polar Bear" & "Dragon" clouds outside Foothill Seamans Library. More cloud photos were taken on Saturday, March 8 at Foothill Krause Center (12:30 pm & 5:45 pm). Photos from Sunday, March 9 (6:20 & 6:41 pm) showed dark clouds on Bay Street, Mountain View, but bright "Seagull & Flaming Clouds" on the other side of the sky.
